At just 8.98mm thin, it packs the seventh-generation Intel Core i7 processor coupled with a 14-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080p. Additionally, the laptop also comes with built-in 4G LTE connectivity, so that users can access to high-speed internet on the go. There’s also 10 hours of battery; the laptop also comes with 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD drive. The Windows 10-powered Swift 7 will be made available in the market from March at a price of $1,699 (or approx Rs 107,606).
Acer Nitro 5
Primarily designed for gamers, the Nitro 5 has got a major upgrade, featuring the AMD Radeon RX560 graphics and AMD Ryzen mobile processors. The 15.6-inch laptop comes with up to 32GB DDR 4 RAM and up to 512GB of SSD drive. While the design of the Nitro 5 is identical to its predecessor, the new model does come with the textured top and a keyboard area. The Nitro 5 will be available in the market for $799 ( or approx Rs 50,628).

The refreshed version of Acer Spin 3 is designed for all-day productivity and entertainment. The laptop carries a 14-inch Full HD display, Intel’s 8th-generation Core processor, up to 12 hours of battery life, and two front-facing speakers. Its 360-degree hinge allows users to use the Spin 3 as a laptop or a tablet device. Acer hasn’t revealed the full specifications of the Spin 3. The convertible laptop goes on sale in February with starting prices of $599 (or approx Rs 37,995).
